The name Mongris comes from the contraction of "mono variety" and the Friulano word for pinot grigio, Gris. Pinot Grigio arrived in Friuli Venezia Giulia over 150 years ago, and is now considered an indigenous grape. Today, it is one of the region’s most widely planted white grapes.
Golden yellow in color, often with copper tones. It has an intense and immediate bouquet with pronounced hints of acacia flowers, broom and apple. In the mouth it is elegantly fruity and becomes full bodied, well-structured and has a remarkably long finish.
"Aromas of tropical fruits such as mango and papaya. Full body with lovely, delicious fruit and a tangy, lightly bitter dried peach character. Drink now."
"Felluga's 2012 Pinot Grigio Mongris is laced with white stone fruit and floral notes. The crisp, bracing style is best enjoyed over the next year or two. "
